Spend St. Patrick’s Day With The Kelly Gang

You could waste your St. Patty’s Day running around Manhattan drinking with the frat boys. Or you could do some good for the world and attend the 5th annual Kelly Gang St. Patrick’s Day Reception at Michael’s, benefiting NFL quarterback Jim Kelly Hunter’s Hope and the Annie Moore Memorial Project.

Tix for the event are on the steep side ($125 in advance, $150 at the door) but how often can you say you were in a room with Jim Kelly, Keith Kelly, American Express Publishing CEO Ed Kelly, House Beautiful president and publisher Kate Kelly Smith and a host of media luminary with surnames such as Remnick (David), Min (Janice, White (Kate), Lipman (Joanne) and Bell (Today‘s EP Jim)?
